Sherif said: "In a case of poor judgement, I broke the villa rules and as a result agreed with the producers that it was best for me to leave the villa.

"I regret that I didn’t conduct myself in the right way and, as a 20 year old guy, it’s something I know I will take on board and learn from.

"I really enjoyed my time in the villa and look forward to catching up with everyone on the outside."

ITV has not yet said what rules were broken which lead to him leaving.

During his time in the villa, Sherif was coupled up with Anna Vakili.

At the weekend, viewers were stunned when both Sherif and Anna revealed they keep a list of their past sexual conquests on their phones.

The confessions came after the contestants took part in a challenge that saw them have to guess who said the statement.

One of the statements revealed a male Islander keeps a list of all the people they've slept with.

But before the rest of them could guess who said it, pharmacist Anna said they weren't alone - she also keeps a list.
